relationship between ted kennedy and barack obama, a lot of folks suggested in recent days barack obama might not be president of the united states right now were it not for that critical endorsement that senator kennedy provided a couple days after caroline kennedy endorsed barack obama over hillary clinton. things in the democratic party could have turned out differently. >> i think a whole lot of folks lay claim to have playing a role in electing president barack obama. there is no doubt that was a very important endorsement because of what it signaled although he did lose massachusetts. he was blown away by senator hillary clinton in that state so senator kennedy did not help him in that regard but certainly the kind of momentum that gave him the stamp of approval was also extremely important as well. look, he saw a lot of his brother in then senator barack obama because caroline kennedy talked about that. also interesting about that race, different kennedy family members were on different sides. everybody was behind the endorsement of senator ted kennedy. >> he encouraged sen

, i should know this. and his fight for civ rights but without which barack obama would not be our president today,ess because of the civil-rights legislation that the kennedys championed but if it were not for the redng the immigration act that was no longer based on quotas the family connectio and workability, back obama's fath probably would not have come here. >> i want todd that to big ones ithe80s were, in 1981 the first year he was back in the senate he ended up leading theight-- leading the fight for continuation of the voting rights act of 1965, arguably the most important. he ended up leading that and that wasis first year back in the senate. the civil-rights resration act which was a huge ended up becoming law in 1988. he started that in 1994, which goes to what susan said about he is willing to take the time to get it done. i would add one thing. the vote he said he is most brought up in his entire senate career was his vote against iraq.

see barack obama sworn in. that day, that cold day, it could not have been easy. it certainly was not medically advisable for him to be out in a crowd and out in that wicked cold on the steps of the capitol. we know what happened at the lunch when he had a setback and collapsed, but it was so important for him to see the president being sworn in. >> oh, he believed in the president before many people even realized the president was running. i mean, i think all of us remember when he and caroline did the speech with president obama, and we could feel the tide turning. his enthusiasm for the president was something that you could feel in the room. his belief turned out to be so true when the american voters believed the same way, and i think that senator kennedy was so proud of the president and will continue to look down on him with great affection and pride from heaven. >> neil, how difficult was it for him to break with the clintons? he had a very close connection to them and had, in fact, reached out and helped bill clinton through the most troubling years of his presidency. then to
